Inspired by this
post about a furry who goes to my school. His self expression walks that line between 'helping the public accept gamer culture as just an ammusing varient' and 'convincing the world we are all a bunch of freaks'.
However, most of us have met people like this
. We all do it on occasion of course, brag about how cool a game was, or how badass our characters are. Heck, there are people who I otherwise like who I get sick of hearing about how neat and nifty their character concept/stats are, ESPECIALLY their stats (ESPECIALLY when they are an NPC who was just handed those stats), and the concept thing is mostly due to me having not quite as much knowledge/investment in the world/system and viewing it as a medium rather than a thing.
